I’m joining some of my blog buddies today to share some DIY farmhouse inspiration. This project comes straight from the heart of an old farmhouse! Well, its bones actually. We have a small pile of old lath boards that came from inside the walls of our farmhouse when we had to remove some of the badly damaged lath and plaster from our living room renovation. I love the idea of reusing these pieces of our home as decor!
We recently landscaped around our house, and I truly thought the shaded north side of our home would be the hardest place to find flowers for. However, I did my research and found lots of beautiful flowering plants to thrive in shade areas that get less than 2 hours of direct sunlight per day. In fact, we have a larger variety of flowers on our shady side than on any other side of the house! These are my picks for the best flowering shade plants.
I have a whole Pinterest board of lovely farmhouse entryways, and I hope to someday have space for hooks, bins, benches, and everything else that makes for a beautiful and functional entryway. But for now we just have this small space to work with, so we’ve kept it simple, practical, and added a touch of farmhouse charm.
We finally replaced our modern IKEA storage unit with something with a bit more farmhouse style! The IKEA bookcase got a new home in our little office/dressing room, and I found this beautiful old piece to use as a farmhouse linen cabinet in the guest bedroom.
